Inbit for 15 Users Only (Try Spark)
June 19, 2009 § 2 Comments
This weeks testing of Inbit went well. Users liked the idea of IM and it was put to good use. That is until the 16th user was restricted. Inbit is not bad at all and at $180 fairly priced but a little more than, Spark.
Spark is an Open Source, cross-platform IM client, with Openfire the cross-platform real-time collaboration server based on the XMPP (Jabber) protocol – the same stuff that powers Gtalk (I believe). ‘Combined with the Openfire server, Spark is the easiest and best alternative to using un-secure public IM networks.’ Next we week will either confirm or refute that. After the success of Inbit with just a few key personal, tells me that IM will work for schools. The more staff on board, the more powerful influential it could be.
